Ottawa Jazz Scene reported earlier that applications for local musicians to perform at next summer's Ottawa Jazz Festival closed December 31, 2009. The Festival has apparently extended that deadline.

The Festival NOW says:

"Musicians wishing to submit applications for a possible performance at the 2010 TD Canada Trust Ottawa International Jazz Festival must send their submissions to the festival office no later than [Friday] January 29, 2010.

The festival requires that you send a CD, bio material and a list of all the musicians in your group. (All members of the group must be members in good standing of the Ottawa/Gatineau Federation of Musicians.)

Send your material to the attention of:
